Injection Molding Materials for Automotive Parts

We offer hundreds of thermoplastic and thermoset resins to meet the broad needs of automotive applications that range from under-the-hood to cosmetic parts.

Acetal and Delrin: Acetal and Delrin offer high tensile strength, and excellent overall durability since its highly wear resistant and has a low coefficient of friction. It's also resistant to chemicals and solvents.

Liquid Silicone Rubber: We stock several grades of liquid silicone rubber materials, including fluorosilicone for parts that require fuel resistance.

Filled and Unfilled Nylon: Nylon is a go-to material choice within the automotive industry due its well rounded mechanical properties that can be enhanced with fillers like glass and mineral.

Supply Your Own Resin: Need to use a material that we don't stock? No problem. Simply fill out this form to supply your own resin.
